It certainly is Using Acronis "try and decide"
Why not actually explain your situation to Acronis / Macrium / Paragon or whoever -- as you are a charitable organisation they might let you have the software FOR NOTHING or a really small (and I mean really small) nominal cost -- you might have to stick a label on the computers saying Backup facilities or Software or some small sentence acknowleging Acronis / Macruim or whoever.
Honestly you've got nothing to lose by trying this --even if they say NO you aren't any worse off than you are now. You might get a favorable answer since an Internet Cafe is a good place to advertise certain brands of Software --for example advising customers to regularly back up their OWN data back home. !!!!
If you CAN get this type of software it makes backing up and restoring a breeze --just schedule the jobs to run every day at whenever you want them to.
A smallish typical Windows 7 image backup using Acronis shouldn't take more than about 20 - 25 mins if that --and a similar amount of time to do the restore.
